I've had a few problems lately with some hardware. Last night I lost
the functionality of our Network Systems Router. Today I lost the
functionality of the Annex Terminal Server (I REALLY Hate when this
happens! ;-<). In any event, I have seen many, many, many ,many
.... (you get the idea) messages regarding ICMP. Like the following:
Oct 24 13:17:28 annex1.hky.com root: icmp: received REDIRECT to
126.96.36.199 from 188.8.131.52 for 184.108.40.206 while running routed
Oct 24 13:17:29 annex1.hky.com last message repeated 107 times
Is this someone trying to ping me, enough to*up the router
requiring a cold reset!
It's my understanding that these are PING messages. Is that true?
Should I shield the network from them? Any ideas are greatly
